Emma Thompson joins Jason Reitman’s “Men, Women & Children”

Emma Thompson, fresh off of her Golden Globe Nomination for Best Actress in Saving Mr. Banks, has been officially linked to director Jason Reitman’s new film Men, Women & Children.

The synopsis of the film, from the official press release, is as follows:

“MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN” follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the Internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.

Emma Thompson will narrate the film, which is currently being shot in and around Austin, Texas. You can read more about the upcoming film here.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
